Sharing files with VMware machine



In a previous post I asked the following:

"I run VMware and install a Windows XP machine inside it. The Vista machine
is defined in a domain but contains also some networking card connected into
another lan.
When I try to share some folder in the XP virtual machine with the Vista
host machine I can't. The oposite direction dosn't work either-I can't share
any folder in the Vista host machine.
On the other hand sharing works fine in both direction when I use another XP
machine on the local lan. This XP can share folders even in the virtual
machine inside the VMware.
Can some help please?
Regards
James"

Mr. Bob Lin responded( thanks Bob)
"Posting the results of ipconfig /all on both computers may help."

I paste the relevant data below, hoping someone can help....

James
